Contextualization is the art of translating ideas into a particular situation, place or culture. It is fundamental to communication, which makes contextualization essential in missions. This textbook pulls together and maps the variety of evangelical approaches to contextualization. Introductory classes on contextualization and missionary preparation institutes will appreciate this valuable textbook.

In section one, Moreau explores foundations that make it possible to see the variety of evangelical models more clearly. He looks at the ways evangelical models have been characterized in the literature, and he highlights the main concerns of evangelicals in their contextualizing efforts. Moreau explains several guiding ideas and analytic tools that show how evangelicals "lean into" contextualization.

In section two, Moreau describes how evangelical models of contextualization can be split into six primary categories based on the role the initiator: facilitator, guide, herald, pathfinder, prophet and restorer. For each initiator role, Moreau explains the role, portrays one or more models from the category, and presents selected contextual practices that evangelicals use which fit the category. This arrangement makes categorization easier than other options and does not frame the models in ways that bias their evaluation.

Contextualization in Missions will guide mission-minded to an informed plan for spreading the gospel effectively. While written with a theoretical perspective, Contextualization in Missions also provides real-world examples to provoke both thought and action.

Out of the crucible of war has come a long list of best-selling, award-winning, and long-remembered novels: The Red Badge Of Courage, All Quiet on the Western Front, The Caine Mutiny, Fields of Fire and The Thirteenth Valley. But none so far has ever captured the power and drama of the United States Marine Corps's ill-fated mission to end the war for Lebanon, which ended in the barracks bombing that killed almost three hundred Marines.

For Sergeant David Griffin, a "peace-time" Marine, Beirut was the chance to prove himself capable to the generation of Marines who had been bloodied in the Vietnam War. For Corporal Steven Downs, Beirut was a struggle to separate the civilian from the soldier, his distrust of the politicians' decisions from the military mission. For all of the Marines serving in Lebanon, it was another war in a foreign country where the enemy could be anywhere or anyone.

Faced with Griffin's court-martial for engaging the enemy against orders, these two young men find themselves questioning their faith in themselves, their commanders, and eventually that which above all else they must have faith in--the Corps.

With the insight that only a Marine Corps veteran could have, C. X. Moreau portrays the men who fought and died in Beirut with skill and ability that bring home to the reader the true meaning of Semper Fi.

"Affecting . . . A haunting slice of military life that unsparingly catalogues the risks, rewards, pain and joys of casting one's lot with warriors."--Kirkus Reviews

"Moreau uses the building block of authentic detail to craft a solid take about a little-known, undeclared war. His debut should attract readers seeking to understand how the U.S. military is waging peace in the Middle East."--Publishers Weekly

"Outstanding! A classic in, yet above and beyond, the war genre. Thank you, C. X. Moreau, for an enlightening work."--John M. Del Vecchio, New York Times best-selling author of The Thirteenth Valley and For The Sake Of All Living Things

"With his first book, Distant Valor, C. X. Moreau, joins the company of top rank military novelists. He shows the reader what it really means to be a Marine."--W.E.B. Griffin, New York Times best-selling author of "The Corps" and "The Brotherhood of War" series

"A clear picture of Marines in action and the politicization that often causes bungled operations. The picture is harsh; but it depicts the anguish and humanity of the Marines who so gallantly bear the brunt of carrying the flag to foreign shores. This first novel rings with the authenticity that only a serving Marine could supply."--The Florida Times-Union

"A novel of character, as are all great war novels...cuts to the heart of the military experience in our time . . ."--San Jose Mercury News

"An absolutely authentic portrayal of the Marines who endured the mud and the blood in Beirut. As captain of a ship offshore, I watched it; C. X. Moreau obviously lived it, up close and personal."--P.T. Deutermann, best-selling author of Scorpion in the Sea

"C. X. Moreau has seen the military future first-hand in Beirut. In an age of fateful involvements in the wars of others, the terrible dilemmas described so ably in Distant Valor are too often the essence of duty for today's Marines and soldiers. This book is as authentic as they come, heartrending and true, exciting and brutally tragic. It is a worthy monument to heroes cast aside."--Ralph Peters, New York Times best-selling author of The War In 2020
Some Library of Congress Representatives placed AFRO-CHRISTIANO-HAITIANO-Voodoo (A. C. H. V.) under the category of scientific work! Ms. Barrett (Literary Agent) acknowledged A. C. H. V.s objectivity! Writers Literary Agency Representatives like the concept and found it unique. Mr. C. H. Dodd Peters said "a tradition may undergo alteration or distortion in the course of long transmission by word-of-mouth. . . . When . . . written, stands substantially unaltered; . . . test and control it by a careful and critical study of the documents which caught and fixed it at the earliest accessible stage of development [1]." In order to prevent alteration or distortion, one put in writing some of the elements found in voodoo (i.e., songs, prayers, tales, etc) that initiates and non-initiates heard. In passing, I did not intend to reveal any secrets initiates kept. We strived to come to call voodoo AFRO-CHRISTIANO-HAITIANO. This project became important to me after learning from several sources some people have been looking for anti-Christ elements to destroy them. I planned to make necessary repairs. * * * We intended to present some questions many voodooists posed about voodoo and to transmit objective responses through AFRO-CHRISTIANO-HAITIANO-Voodoo (A. C. H. V.). One aimed at confirming the responses with studies conducted and empirical data; honoring voodooists who did not question voodoo. One worked to sustain the faith of those persons and to perpetuate the words of God. One aimed at proving that God exists. This specially came to be more important when I heard on the radio (U. S. A.) most "baby boomers" asked whether God existed or not; if they have worked on Earth in vain. Here, one planed to honor the major and minor spirits. My work differs from the books of DOKTOR Snake (VOODOO SPELLBOOK) and Mrs. Denise Alvarado (THE VOODOO HOODOO SPELL BOOK). In their books, they paid attention to spells. I paid attention to spells and other matters in my book. Mrs. Catherine YRONWODE's work entailed herb and root virtues or their inclusion in magic. (The title of her book is HOODOO HERB AND ROOT MAGIC.) I paid attention to magic and other matters in book. Mr. Milo RIGAUD's SECRETS OF VOODOO dealt with secrets of voodoo. Mine did not. I included hundreds of lyrics to voodoo songs in my work and they, at the very least, render it unique.
